When I set out on this massive experiment, I had never heard of Nespresso. I figured my choices were relegated to Keurig and Tassimo.
I was browsing the single serve coffee maker section and saw these really cool looking machines. They were Nespresso coffee and espresso makers.
Yes, I bought both the Vertuoline and Pixie. If you can’t decide, you’re at the right place because I’ve used both extensively.
I say buy the Vertuoline. The main reason is it’s more versatile. By versatile I mean there are capsules for coffee as well as espresso. The Pixie only makes espresso. In fact, the Vertuoline offers capuccino, latte, espresso and coffee capsules.
What are the main differences between the Nespresso Vertuoline and Pixie?
*Prices subject to change.
The Vertuoline is quite a big wider.
Both machines produce the same level of noise.
4. Water Reservoir
Both have transparent, detachable water reservoirs.
5. Capsule Disposal Container
Both have a capsule disposal container (which is VERY convenient). Capsules automatically drop in the disposal container once brewing done. Note, the Vertuoline’s capsule disposal container is larger.
Both are designed in a similar appearance. I like the design.
Each machine uses different capsules. This is important to know when buying refills.
Also, as with all Nespresso capsules, they are only available in select stores and online. In other words, you won’t find them in every grocery stores (unlike K-Cups and Tassimo T-Discs).
7. Brew Speed:
If I were forced to buy one, I’d get the Vertuoline just because it’s more versatile. If you love the Aeroccino Plus (as I do), you can still buy it on its own.
